Description

In Quarantine, you play the part of a taxi driver, desperate to escape from the violent prison city of Kemo. Deliver passengers to their destinations, so you can earn money to upgrade your cab, and take on undercover missions in the hope that somehow you can find a way out. An impressive array of cab-mounted weaponry will help you to survive.

Trivia

One of Quarantine's designers, Ray Larabie, now runs a great font site in his spare time, containing over 400 fonts that he's made. He even created a font called Edgewater, in honour of Quarantine's lovable taxi-driving, ped-killing protagonist :)
